The one day cruise is one of the favorite day trips from Athens. Combining three Greek islands in one day including lunch on board it is good value for money and truly a full day of fun and exploration. The pickup service will collect you from your hotel. It’s just a short 30 minute drive to the harbour where you will board your ship for a memorable full day cruise to the three Saronic Gulf Islands of Aegina, Hydra and Poros.

Island of Aegina

During the one day cruise from Athens you will visit the island of Aegina, home to an impressive Doric temple and ruined Byzantine village. The island has the beautiful, and easy going character of a typical Greek island. Aegina boasts a stunning waterfront with coffee shops, restaurants and a lively market place. Enjoy exploring the small port and the souvenir shops - the local produce of Aegina is the pistachio nut which you will find at many little shops on the quay.

Island of Poros

Further south, Poros, with its impressive old town and forested hinterland, curves only a few hundred metres from the Peloponnese – separated by the Poros straights. The island of Poros is quite different from Hydra and Aegina; also a very beautiful port town with a highlight being the proximity of the island to the Peloponnese and the endless boats crossing the straights.

Island of Hydra

You will also visit the, considered by many as the Saronic islands highlight, island of Hydra. Considered one of the prettiest port towns of the Aegean with large stone mansions of exquisite architecture overlooking the harbour. Hydra is one of the only Greek islands that no wheeled vehicles are allowed on. There are no cars and no scooters. Just tiny marble-cobbled lanes, donkeys, rocks, and sea. Stroll the waterfront and explore the beauty of the island; see why Hydra has been attracting world renowned artists since the early 60’s up to today.​Hydra, against the tide, has managed to retain its style and character unspoilt by modern development and tourism. It is a hidden gem amongst the Greek islands.

The cruise ship is fully equipped with bars, dance floor, inside/outside seating, money exchange, gift shop, restaurant, air conditioning/heating etc. Enjoy lunch on board (icnluded in the price). In the afternoon there is also a show to keep you entertained for the return journey.

Upon return there is a transfer service (included) to drop you off at your hotel.
